A Man Called Ove – Fredrik Backman (bestseller)|
Read the?New York Times?bestseller that has taken the world by storm!
Meet Ove. He?s a curmudgeon?the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him ?the bitter neighbor from hell.? But must Ove be bitter just because he doesn?t walk around with a smile plastered to his face all the time?
Behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness. So when one November morning a chatty young couple with two chatty young daughters move in next door and accidentally flatten Ove?s mailbox, it is the lead-in to a comical and heartwarming tale of unkempt cats, unexpected friendship, and the ancient art of backing up a U-Haul. All of which will change one cranky old man and a local residents? association to their very foundations.
A feel-good story in the spirit of?The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry?and?Major Pettigrew?s Last Stand, Fredrik Backman?s novel about the angry old man next door is a thoughtful exploration of the profound impact one life has on countless others. ?If there was an award for ?Most Charming Book of the Year,? this first novel by a Swedish blogger-turned-overnight-sensation would win hands down? (Booklist, starred review).
